Read the passage and answer the questions that follow on the basis of the information provided in the passage.

Spring is almost here, but it won't bring a thaw. Neither will summer. If it's going to happen, we'll have to make it happen ourselves.

American businesses and consumers are going virtually nowhere economically. The metaphor we keep hearing is that they're frozen by anxiety over war. Air travel is down because people don't want to get on airplanes. Hotel bookings are down, especially after the feds raised the terror alert level from yellow to orange and specified hotels and apartment buildings as possible targets. Advertisers don't want to advertise on TV during war coverage. Growing companies don't want to do IPOs. Banks don't want to make loans. Result: The icebound economy grows hardly at all, as the latest figures confirm.

The conventional view is that respectable growth will return - the freeze will thaw - once the Iraq situation is resolved. The shooting may have started by the time you read this, though it has not as of press time; in any case, the Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfield has predicted that the war might take six days or six weeks, but probably not six months. After that, with Saddam- the Iraqi despot- sorted out, we can all get back to spending and investing.

Chances are good, though, that it won't work out quite that way. The conventional view is based (as it often is) on an old model and plenty of hope. The more likely reality is that we're seeing the start of a fundamentally new model of how we live our lives and do business in the U.S.

The old model was formed after the previous Iraq war, won in a few weeks of dazzling high-tech battle, with few U.S. casualties and a relatively clean end. And, oh, what followed almost immediately: The end of a recession, the beginning of the longest continuous economic expansion in our history and the relaunch of the greatest bull market ever. You can't blame anyone for wanting to hug that scenario this time around.

Read the passage and answer the questions that follow on the basis of the information provided in the passage.

DATA TYPES AND TABLE STRUCTURES

Databases and database technology have a major impact on the growing use of computers. It is fair to say that databases will play a critical role in almost all areas of computer usage, including business, engineering, medicine, law, education and library science to name a few. A database is a collection of related data. By data, we mean known facts that can be recorded and that have implicit meaning. For example consider the names, telephone numbers, and addresses of the people you know.

Generally data in databases is contained in objects called tables. Each table represents some type of object meaningful to the users. For example, in a school database you would expect to find tables such as a class table, an instructor table, and a student table.

The tables have two main components:

* Columns

Each column represents some attribute of the object modeled by the table, such as a Students table having columns for RollNo, Name

and Course

* Rows

Each row represents an individual occurrence of the object modeled by the table. For example, the Students table would have one row for each student studying in the School/College.

Because each column represents one attribute of an object, the data in each occurrence of the column is similar. One of the properties of a column is called its data type, which defines the type of data the column can hold. A Database supports several base data types like int, char,date etc. int can hold integers (ex: 5000) , char can hold characters (ex: ìHelloî), date can hold date values (ex: 01-Jan- 1980) and so on.

Columns can either accept or reject NULL values. NULL is a special value in databases that represents the concept of an unknown value. NULL is not the same as a blank character or 0. Blank is actually a valid character, and zero is a valid number, while NULL just represents the idea that we do not know what the value is. NULL is also different from a zero length string. If a column definition contains the NOT NULL clause, you cannot insert rows having the value NULL for that row. If the column definition has just the NULL keyword, it accepts NULL values.

The Database Server stores the data defining the configuration of the server and all its tables in a special set of tables known as system tables. Users should not query or update system tables directly. Only the Database Server should reference the system tables in response to administration commands issued by users.

31) Data in Databases are usually stored in the form of

A) Objects

B) Text

C) Numbers

D) Tables

32) Given the following table, can you identify the row and column number respectively pertaining to the student who has secured the highest percentage of marks.

A) 5th row, 5th column

B) 6th row, 5th column

C) 3rd row, 5th column

D) 5th row, 3rd column

A) Columns that are defined as NULL contain no data

B) You can enter data of any datatype into a NULL column

35) Identify the statement(s) that is/are TRUE w.r.t. a System Table.

A) The configuration details of the Server are stored in a special set of tables known as System Tables.
